    How big is it?

    This question comes up a lot with Los Angeles. Boundaries and expanse break down depending on your psychological and sociological scales of experience -- sometimes this manifest as neighborhoods, sometimes as routes on a freeway map. Coming to Shenzhen, in the vacuumed nave of a former floating glass factory (pictured), scale has a very fresh history. The massive renovation of the Value Factory for the biennale is a symptom of the city's massive economic growth within the meager past of a few decades, transforming from fishing village to pivot-point of world-trade, and perhaps eventually to cultural capital.
